Metro Cuadrado (English: Square Meter) is a 2011 Chilean drama film directed and written by Nayra Ilic, and filmed in Santiago, Chile.[1]


The movie tells the story of Francisca, a young woman who recently moved into an apartment with her boyfriend Andrés. While she is unpacking and building her new life with her partner, her feelings are gradually deconstructed as the film observes how everyday life can threaten the concept of living as a couple. Leaving clichés behind, the film quietly critiques the traditional notion of family.


The film has been well received by critics, with saying: “Challenging herself to make a genuinely cinematic experience almost exclusively inside the confines of a big-city apartment, debuting Chilean writer-director Nayra Ilic surpasses her test with the sharply observed “Square Meter”.[2]
